Is it all still "W", all the time?

Sebelius suggests Republicans to blame for ObamaCare website woes | Fox News:
Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius took a swipe Friday at those calling for her to resign over the botched ObamaCare website rollout, suggesting that Republican efforts to delay and defund the law contributed to's glitch-ridden debut. 
 During a visit to a community health center in Austin, Sebelius conceded that there wasn't enough testing done on the website, but added that her department had little flexibility to postpone the launch against the backdrop of Washington's unforgiving politics. 
 "In an ideal world there would have been a lot more testing, but we did not have the luxury of that. And the law said the go-time was Oct. 1," she said. "And frankly, a political atmosphere where the majority party, at least in the House, was determined to stop this anyway they possibly could ... was not an ideal atmosphere."

Yes, according to the House of Representatives "History, Art and Archives", the Republicans do control the House of Representatives this year (234/201 out of 435 representatives).

And because the House controls the purse-strings, it has more power in terms of MONEY than the senate.

Note that the Senate elects only two Senators to represent each state: that's why we have 100 senators.

But the Representatives are elected by each DISTRICT within the state.

Funny thing about the difference between Senatorial and Representative votes:  in a given state, the Senators are elected by the majority vote within the state.  That means that the population centers (in Oregon, the free-loaders in Portland/Multomah County .. not to say that all the people living there but MOST of the people living there) get to choose their Senators.

ALMOST every where else in the state or, say, OREGON .. well, this is a bunch of farmers who don't know any better, so they elect Republican Representatives.  Even in population centers, they tend to choose Democratic Representatives who actually listen to the Will Of The People.

So, while Senators tend to cater to Big City Folks, Representatives tend to  represent Grass Roots folks.

That's why our Founding Fathers set up this bicameral system.  They didn't want the Farmers to be outvoted by the Freeloaders, on wellfare.
(yes, I'm aware that I've just insulted a majority of my fellow Oregonians.  I can live with that.)

So: Kathleen Sebelius is protesting (weakly, not from a position of strength). that:
" ... a political atmosphere where the majority party, at least in the House, was determined to stop this anyway they possibly could ... was not an ideal atmosphere. "

Oh, I don't know about that.  It depends on what your definition of "IDEAL", is.

For the Liberal Democrat Sebelius, an "Ideal Atmosphere" is a situation where the Legislative Branch of the Government rubber-stamps the Executive branch.   She's seriously pissed, because "people" (read: "PEONS") who are not professional politicians, have expressed their will to not support the will of Their President ("Executive Branch").

Certainly, not an "Ideal Atmosphere" from her point of view.  After all, didn't she already accept responsibility for the failure of the ObamaCare Website?  How DARE the lowly "people" differ with her lofty Liberal position?

Did she not assume a sufficiently demure position?    She SAID she was "sorry" the website didn't work, and there was the odd Senator or two who suggested that "we have to pass the bill, before we know what's in it".  What more do the hoi poloi want?


Okay, let's look at the recent plethora of news stories which suggest that the Obamacare System can't even get people to register for the plan.
No, let's look at the stories which state clearly that the Obamacare System is too expensive for many Americans to afford.   More expensive than the plans they already have, but those plans aren't 'acceptable' to ObamaCare because the new insurance doesn't allow you to tailor your Insurance to our needs.
 No, let's consider that ObamaCare offers the Best, at the expense of the Good Enough.

No,  let's look at the stories which reveal that Obama Lied about "If you like your doctor/insurance policy, you can keep them".

No ... you've all heard these stories, and I'm not going to link to them.  Do your own damned Google Search.

Kathy is royally pissed because Republicans in the House are presenting roadblocks which cause both she and Obama to trip over their mutually non-existant Dicks on the road to full congressional acceptance of ObamaCare.  She thinks they're Bad boys, these Republican  iconoclasts who defy the will of Their Lord and Savior, B. Obama!

(... and their Goddess Kathleen Sebelius, for that matter!_

Unfortunately, both Sebelius and Obama have lost tract of one simple fact:  they are not Royalty.

In fact, they are Servants of The People.  As such, they are subject to the will of The People whom they represent.

And The People are pissed!

Among all the ills of ObamaCare, they ignore the fact that signing up for Their Plan is not only awkward, but costly.  Most people who have succumbed to their sweet melody and discovering that they are not paying less, but more, than their current plans.

And they can't keep their chosen Health Plans, which exposes the LIES of Obama.

For example, if you're a young male petitioner, you have to accept a Health Plan which provides both Natal and Abortion clauses.  Are you expecting to need an abortion?  Doesn't matter; you have to have it .. and pay for it.

A Perfect Health Plan for an Imperfect People.  And if you don't sign up for it? 
"I'll Kick Your Ass!"

So, Kathy is pissed because those Nasty Republicans (those few who still have the cajones to do so) are fighting against Presidential Edict?

My Dear, that's the best news I've heard all day!

Welcome to The Republic of America

Not only Bush, but Nixon had a hand in sabotaging Obamacare
